The Penn men's and women's lacrosse teams both will be on the road for first-round NCAA tournament games next weekend. The men (8-6) head to fourth-seeded Notre Dame on Saturday, with the game televised on ESPNU at 2:30 p.m. The Irish (10-2) lost last year's Division I championship game to Duke. It's Penn's first postseason berth since 2006. Penn's women (11-5), after being upset by eventual champion Princeton in the Ivy League tournament on Saturday, will play at No. 5 Duke (13-4)

WITH THE START of the men's college lacrosse season just over a week away, the quality of the local programs is as good as it's ever been. Adding to the excitement, Villanova will host the inaugural Big East Tournament, and Drexel will be the host school for two NCAA Tournament quarterfinal games May 20 at PPL Park. "It will be great exposure for Philadelphia-area lacrosse, with top teams coming in here," Villanova coach Mike Corrado said. "I hate to say it as a Long Island guy, but along with New York and Maryland, this area is becoming one of the country's premiere hotbeds of lacrosse.

The territory is familiar for both teams. The landscape, though, has evened out over the years. On Saturday, Moorestown will play for a Group 3 state title, and Shawnee will play for a Group 4 state title in girls' lacrosse. Classically, these two schools are the state's juggernauts of the sport. And once again, they are the last South Jersey teams standing. Moorestown is vying for its 22nd state championship, which is the most in New Jersey history. Shawnee is playing for its ninth, which is second most.

The Moorestown boys' lacrosse team had just played its best game of the year, by far, in an 8-2 win at Ridgewood in the state Group 3 semifinals. But Quakers coach Baron Wallenhurst didn't take time to celebrate after the 90-minute ride back to Moorestown on Saturday. Instead, the coach stepped off the team bus and into his own car, and he made another drive back north - this one to Ridge, where he scouted the other Group 3 semifinal between Morristown and Ridge. "I think we logged about 400 miles that day," said Wallenhurst, whose fifth-seeded Quakers will play No. 2 Ridge at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Watchung Hills.

Temple's goal to build a football stadium on campus has received "some seven-figure commitments" for funding, the chairman of the university's board of trustees said Thursday. Chairman Patrick O'Connor confirmed that a proposed 35,000-seat stadium with an estimated cost of $100 million is being pursued for the northwest corner of campus. He said the issue is expected to be discussed at the December trustees meeting. "We are moving forward and exploring every option," he said. The stadium would rise about a block or two behind the Liacouras Center.

Right after halftime, Penn State's Ally Heavens stood next to a Northwestern player. In the pouring rain, Heavens' jersey was soaked. The Northwestern player had changed into a new uniform. "A lot of top-ranked teams, they get a lot of gear. They get a lot of stuff, so I was like,'Damn,' " Heavens said. But the Nittany Lions ended up losing by only 5-4 to the perennial powerhouse. That was why Heavens said she chose to play at Penn State in October of her junior year at Garnet Valley High School.

Allie Murray thought she was never going to play lacrosse again. She had already graduated from Notre Dame in three years and spent the following year working with kids at a community center in South Bend, Ind. As she searched for graduate schools, her mother, Ellen, told her to have low expectations because she only had one year of eligibility. The goalie began preparing as if her playing days were behind her. Her Notre Dame career included 15 starts, a 9.87 goals-allowed average and 104 saves.

WHEN KIARA Brooks and her teammates walk the halls of Strawberry Mansion High in their lacrosse uniforms, other students pepper them with questions. "They'll say, 'What?' or 'What's that?' " said Brooks, 16, a sophomore. "Sometimes they call it corny. " But she and her teammates are resilient. Having begun playing lacrosse in February, they've learned to keep their cool against opponents with much more experience, some of whom have taunted them, calling them "ghetto" or other insults, coach Jazmine Smith said.

Penn and Penn State's women's lacrosse teams are set to face off Saturday in State College in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals. For either team, a win would mark a milestone in recent school history. Penn State hasn't made the semifinals since 1999, while Penn has not gotten there since 2009. The Lions (13-6) are coming off a 14-13 overtime win against Florida. Penn (15-4) decisively defeated its first two tournament opponents. The Quakers took down Wagner, 17-7, before overpowering Towson, 12-4.

Katie O'Donnell watched her first NCAA lacrosse tournament from a stroller. Her mother, Jen, a former West Chester lacrosse player and referee, carted her daughter to games as a toddler. When she got older, Katie O'Donnell remembers sitting on the sidelines, enamored watching the University of Virginia's Amy Appelt speed across the field. O'Donnell isn't on the sidelines anymore. The sophomore midfielder for Penn State has played a key role in the team's success so far in the NCAA tournament.

Aryn McCormick wore her late fiancé's sweatshirt, the baggy black one with "Irish Lacrosse" embossed on the front. "Mine doesn't fit anymore," said McCormick, who is expecting her second child in August. Her older son, Seamus, will turn 1 on May 18. He was front and center Wednesday, wearing his green sweat jacket with the Fighting Irish logo, smiling at everybody who caught his eye. "Sad and happy," Camden Catholic senior goalie Khaia Baranowski said in summation of a special afternoon at Shamrock Field, when the Irish girls' lacrosse team welcomed back their former assistant coach and honored a loyal supporter of the program who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Even from across the country, Colleen Magarity, Penn Charter's first-year lacrosse coach, coveted the skills of Quakers senior Hannah Fox. Fox was a sophomore back then. Magarity, arguably the most successful player out of Germantown Academy, was an assistant coach on the recruiting trail for the University of Colorado. Fate would later bring player and coach together, and on Tuesday afternoon the duo shared a special moment at rival Germantown Academy. Fox, already Penn Charter's all-time leading scorer in basketball - boys and girls - notched her 100th career lacrosse goal in the Quakers' 13-8 victory against the Patriots, who were led by one of Magarity's former coaches.

Within the 5-foot-8, 165-pound body of Michael Sowers is a heart that refuses to quit and a spleen that nearly derailed his football and lacrosse dreams. Last week, the senior attacker for Upper Dublin, who is believed to be the all-time assist leader in U.S. boys' high school lacrosse history, was named to the U.S. men's under-19 national lacrosse team. To understand the significance of the accomplishment, however, you need to consider his bout with mononucleosis during football season.
